MIAMI, June 15, 2017Cushman & Wakefield announced today that it has negotiated the sale of Cottage Cove, a 468-unit residential asset located at 10 NE 188th Street.

Cushman & Wakefield’s South Florida Multifamily Team of Vice Chairman Robert Given, Executive Vice President Calum Weaver, Senior Managing Director Troy Ballard, Executive Managing Director Zachary Sackley and Senior Financial Analyst Perry Synanidis negotiated the disposition on behalf of TM Real Estate Group, LLC. The asset was acquired by Marlin Spring Realty Limited for $50 million ($151 per square foot).

Cottage Cove consists of 468 units in 100 buildings. The first phase of the property featured 94 quadplexes. The second phase included six two- and three-story buildings. The unit mix includes studios, one- and two-bedroom units. Non-renovated interior finishes include Formica countertops, white wood cabinetry, white appliances, and carpet flooring. Select units have been upgraded to include vinyl flooring and upgraded cabinets. Amenities include a newly gut-renovated laundry building with 26 brand new sets of washer/dryer units, a swimming pool and on-site leasing office.

The property is currently stabilized with 97 percent occupancy and an average market rent of $1.40 per square foot.

“A project of this scale and vintage rarely comes to market in Miami-Dade,” said Given. “As a result, interest level in the offering was exceptional.”

“Investor interest was very strong due the sheer size of the property and value-add opportunity,” added Weaver. “The buyer is new to the South Florida market, highlighting an abundance of new domestic and foreign capital looking for value-add opportunities throughout the region.”
